Austin Guinea Pig Rescue


Austin Guinea Pig Rescue is an organization dedicated to rehoming guinea pigs, chinchillas, hamsters, gerbils, mice, degus and hedgehogs in the Austin, Texas area.

Our animals are treated for any medical issues, socialized, and fostered until they are ready to be adopted.
